  • Shocked

    Completely contradicts the Sheriffs responsibility to the citizens of Fulton County. He has a duty to assist the prosecution, doesn‘t he know that he is also LEO?????

  • Laughing Cow

    One Word, Sue.

  • Concerned

    Perfect display of " Corrupt Power". Stopping ALL LEO‘s from having access is just stupid, it absolutely interferes with the State‘s Case and Prosecution.

  • Disgusted and Fed Up

    This is a total obstruction of justice. He is in contempt and should be arrested. This is so embarrassing. The personal issues within this LEO Agency are exactly why the FCSO is in such disarray. Inappropriate use of power. I guess the inmates can safely discuss how to keep getting contraband into the jail since no one is listening at this point. Very disgusting conduct on the part of the Sheriff, he is risking his officers and the inmates safety. Disgusting POWER TRIP. Put your ego up and focus on getting your staffing numbers up and fixing the contract issues with Aramark. This is ridiculous.

    Sad

  • Miss Daisy

    Do defense attorneys get access to the same surveillance system the DA does?

  • JC

    The sheriff is way out of line here. You should never let personal feelings interfere with professional administration of public safety issues. This could certainly cost him in the next election with the public who may feel he chose politics over safety...

  • SMH

    From an outsider looking in, this is just crazy. Why would you want to hinder law enforcement‘s ability to protect the community that all of you are supposed to serve? Sounds like city politics to me.
